Spring is finally in the air, and it is time to dust off those running shoes and join in the fun at the 21st annual Newton Heartbreak Hill Road Race & Walk. The race starts at Newton City Hall. It is half a mile up and down famed Heartbreak Hill, the day before the Boston Marathon. All runners receive a t-shirt, seedling tree, race medal and official digital clock timing. The 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners in each category receive a trophy. Of course, there is wild cheering, music, games and face painting and games with Lasell College students…and admiration all around!The runners are separated into categories by age and gender. New this year, is an Intergenerational Walk around Newton City Hall for all ages (assistive devices welcome). Not a runner? Join in the Family Walk at 3pm. The pre-race pasta/pizza party ($3 per person) is a great way to start off the festivities, the day before the race on Saturday, April 13 at 5:30pm at Newton City Hall, War Memorial Auditorium. Hide
